Money usually came in 4th, 5th or 6th on their reasons for leaving. Lack of career progression or potential came high on the list, usually 2nd or 3rd. But the most damning reason of all was sloppy management. READ MORE HERE

Natural Gas Combustion Products

GasComponents

When 1 cubic foot of natural gas is burned with just enough air for complete combustion, it produces 11 cubic feet of combustion products (as shown in the illustration on this slide). This total includes 1 cubic foot of carbon dioxide and 2 cubic feet of water vapor formed in the burning of the gas. It also includes about 8 cubic feet of nitrogen, which did not take part in the burning of the gas. In virtually all burners, some excess air is used. This volume of excess air is added to the combustion products flowing from the flue outlet. A provision is made on most equipment to vent (remove) these flue gases from the home.
